Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children. But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet.
Darrow - and Reds like him - are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class. Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity's overlords struggle for power. He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society's ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies...even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.

An average book - but I kinda want to read on

The narrator wasn't brilliant but did a fantastic job. The book itself has a slow start but soon gains momentum and is told faster and more exiting. The book hinges around some ideas which are pretty unbelievable in my opinion. Many decisions done by the people in power in this story make no sense. Its like they really gave some thoughts in how to rule and then just did the opposite. Not even stupidity or disinterest in their subjects could explain this, and those people are described as superior in body and mind. But if logic problems don't annoy you like they annoy me you will get a nice experience after the first chapter.

The Mockingjay is now a boy

The book is (technically) well written and the reader is among the best I've listened to so far.

However, this is just the dystopian story told in "The Hunger Games", but with a slightly different setting (Mars) and a male main character and therefore more descriptions of fights in any imaginable form.

If you're looking for an extremely well written "action adventure", this is for you. If you would prefer a story including an analysis of the underlying social structures and the resulting consequences, look somewhere else.

I don't think I'll give the second book a try.
